Youth Enrichment Services

Leadership Corps

The Leadership Corps at Youth Enrichment Services (YES) is a program offering teens the opportunity to develop their leadership potential as they participate in and coach outdoor activities. There are three different Leadership Corps tracks teens can choose from depending on their interests: Cross Country Ski, Downhill SnowSports, and Impact Interns.

Dates: October 15, 2019 – March 27, 2020

Time: 4:00pm-7:00pm
Optional 3:00pm-4:00pm study hour and one-on-one college readiness advisory

Days: Each track meets on the scheduled date outlined below.

*Teens who choose not to participate in a sport can participate in leadership and college prep activities but will not receive volunteer hours. 


Cross Country Ski – College Preparation Focus

Teens enrolled in this track will have the opportunity to participate in interactive college readiness and leadership development workshops. Teens put their leadership skills into practice by confidence coaching youth during weekly cross country ski trips with YES.

Dates: Workshops occur weekly on Mondays or Thursdays


Downhill SnowSports – Leadership Focus

Teens enrolled in this track will have the opportunity to develop leadership skills, get involved in community service, and participate in hands-on leadership workshops and volunteer activities. Teens in the downhill program learn how to ski or snowboard (if they do not know how to) and put their leadership skills into practice by co-teaching ski or snowboard lessons on weekend ski and snowboard activities.

Dates: Workshops occur weekly on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays. Operation SnowSports activities will take place on Saturdays and Sundays.


Impact Internship – Career Exploration Focus

Teens enrolled in this track will have the opportunity to gain valuable career readiness and leadership skills through hands on skills-based workshops including marketing, data collection, and photography. Teens put their leadership skills into practice by helping to document YES’s outdoor adventure programs, measuring YES’s impact, and interning with YES’s leadership team.

Dates: Workshops occur weekly on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.


*Students choose one day per week to attend 

*Leadership Corps is a free-of-cost program.
